MMD leader Nevers Mumba

MMD President Dr Nevers Mumba  has charged that high levels of drunkenness among the top leadership of the Patriotic Front has destroyed the governance system in the country which has descended to pathetic levels of shoddy and reckless actions and public pronouncements, mostly for shameful  political expediency and cheap propaganda.

 

Dr. Mumba who is also  Founder and President of Victory Bible Ministries International quoted from Proverbs 31:4-5  which says

 

“It is not for kings to drink wine, nor for rulers to crave beer, lest they drink and forget what the law decrees and deprive all the oppressed of their rights.”

 

He said it was very clear that high levels of alcohol abuse among top leaders in PF  have resulted in making some extremely questionable decisions which have deprived many citizens of their democratic rights and caused a lot of suffering among the poor.  

 

Speaking at a mammoth joint UPND/MMD/UDF/ADD rally to drum uo support for Hakainde Hichilema in Mongu on Saturday afternoon,  Dr Mumba appealed to those charged with looking after the lives of the millions of suffering Zambians and the affairs of the country to avoid excessive drinking and turning serious institutions like State House, the seat of Goverment, into a beerhall or tarvern as serious decisions that  have  far-reaching implications on the lives of Zambians are made there.

 

He said it can only be in a  state of drunken stupor that  a leader can get up and re-name a university which does not exist where not even one brick has been laid, or talk about infrastructure development projects  including King Lewanika University in Western Province or Mongu Stadium when such institutions do not exist but give the nation  the impression that these institutions actually exist all in a desperate effort to  win votes from unsuspecting Zambians.

 

Dr. Mumba said it is better to honor the memory and legacy  of late President Frederick Chiluba by emulating his great record of  democratic freedoms  such as  freedom of speech, freedom of assembly,  free press which the PF is systematically destroying.

 

Dr. Mumba asked the  enthusiastic crowd  in attendance at the Mongu rally to ‘sontapo’ or point where  the King Lewanika University or Mongu Stadium were to which the crowd roared ‘ki buhata fela’ (its  lies). 

 

He said as it was in 1963, when all Zambians put their selfish and personal ambitions aside in order to achieve a bigger common goal which was  Zambia’s political independence, likewise, he and others had decided to put their own personal political ambitions aside, in the manner that late ANC President Harry Nkumbula, a Tonga, had done for Kenneth Kaunda, a Bemba, and  rally behind the candidature of Hakainde Hichilema as president, to save the country from collapse.

 

Dr Mumba therefore called on the people of Western Province to be serious in the coming General Election and vote carefully for  a sober, intelligent person like Hakainde Hichilema as president to be in charge of steering the affairs of Zambia out of the current economic quagmire.

 

He chided the group calling itself ‘Christians for Lungu’ that genuine Christians can only be for God and not for an individual and advised them to only champion the cause for God to avoid cheapening Christianity.

  4. Nevers Mumba has never won an election. He has never succeeded in any political manouvres, so what has changed now? Mumba is only good at destroying political parties, look at MMD. It is a shell, this Mumba can never be trusted with power.
    He is upset with Lungu because he didn’t choose him as his running mate. He wanted to get the running mate position on silver plate without having worked for it. Mumba go back to the pulpit, God wants you to repent and go back and serve him again, and your house will be in order. Politics is not for you baba.

    • @ Surely how can you’ve ‘christians’ for Lungu?.Did Lungu die for anyone for the salvation of mankind?.Indeed Jameson has damaged even the nominal christians.”The apali umunwe epali ibala”saying is qualified by the one saying it;how much do you trust him?,bearing in mind his jameson/brain damage state.Where’s Lewanika Varsity and Mongu Stadium?.Changing a name for a non-existant varsity is pure jameson inspired statement-knowing the man saying it.All what PF has done is to commission what MMD started under Mwanawasa.Rupiah came to ruin what Mwanawasa started and caused loss for MMD.Now Rupiah has ruined PF/Lungu.Watch the space.Only fellow drunks can support Visionless Lungu.

  5. Pastor Nevers Mumba will now destroy the UPND beyond redemption, just wait for August 11th, there will be no UPND and its leader HH will go into political oblivion because he is also blind, he can’t see that all these parasites like Mumba are just sucking him and destroying his party. Zambians are very clever people, UPND will be shocked with the results of the elections but as usual they will cry foul.

  11. If the Zambian voters won’t put premium on the type of Leadership they vote for,we shall continue having drunks and morally bancrupt leaders leading us.You may down play Dr Mumbas’s views,but that’s a fact.Bukoko impairs good judgement.

    • @ Shemuna-Let me educate you on the call of God.There is no such thing as ex-clergy.Being a Pastor is not done by man or by some organisation who can withdraw the crdentials.The calling of God is irrevocable and without repentence the Bible says.The call of Dr Mumba by God will be there till the Lord calls him back to be with him(death).Whether you like it or not Dr Mumba is still a Servant of God.Politics do not nullify the call of God upon any person called by God, unless the title(as pastor,priest etc) was given by man or an organisation.
